“Last night I had the honour of hosting the fantastic OutSpoken Speakers network at Trainline's London HQ. It was so amazing to hear such honest, powerful and raw accounts of what LGBTQ+ family means to the panelists. The fantastic Chloe Davies hosted with Trainline's Jen Kaarlo Mendenhall on the panel alongside Raga D'silva and Rebecca Dandridge.Very proud to be able to host content like this at the Trainline offices and I don't think there was a dry eye in sight with the honest conversations had”

“Amazing event with OUTSpokenSpeakers last night discussing family, chosen family, workplace family. We talked about trust, judgement and safety and it was great to be in a space that felt very honest and open. Grateful to Polly Shute and Raga D'silva for the space to hear exceptional insights from the panel.”

Re: LGBT Families panel discussion/ Dec 7th Networking Event.....

This was the event of the year for me. Three extremely brave and powerful women talking about their tough personal journeys of life and the meaning of 'family' to them and sharing how they have fought through to overcome their battles caused by a society which is still light years behind the times. I wish those who spoke from their hearts could do a global roadshow and help change the world for the better.”
